  • The Robot's Rebellionby Keith E. Stanovich

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 18.00

    The idea that we might be robots is no longer the stuff of science fiction; decades of research in evolutionary biology and cognitive science have led many esteemed scientists to the conclusion that, according to the precepts of universal Darwinism, humans are merely the hosts for two replicators (genes and memes) that have no interest in us except... more...

  • Jokesby Ted Cohen

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 11.00

    Abe and his friend Sol are out for a walk together in a part of town they haven't been in before. Passing a Christian church, they notice a curious sign in front that says "$1,000 to anyone who will convert." "I wonder what that's about," says Abe. "I think I'll go in and have a look. I'll be back in a minute; just wait for me." Sol sits on the... more...

  • The Hunt for Nazi Spiesby Simon Kitson; Catherine Tihanyi

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 18.00

    From 1940 to 1942, French secret agents arrested more than two thousand spies working for the Germans and executed several dozen of them?all despite the Vichy government?s declared collaboration with the Third Reich. A previously untold chapter in the history of World War II, this duplicitous activity is the gripping subject of The Hunt for Nazi... more...

  • A Child's Workby Vivian Gussin Paley

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 11.00

    The buzz word in education today is accountability. But the federal mandate of "no child left behind" has come to mean curriculums driven by preparation for standardized tests and quantifiable learning results. Even for very young children, unstructured creative time in the classroom is waning as teachers and administrators are under growing pressures... more...

  • Berkeley's Philosophy of Mathematicsby Douglas M. Jesseph

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 30.00

    In this first modern, critical assessment of the place of mathematics in Berkeley's philosophy and Berkeley's place in the history of mathematics, Douglas M. Jesseph provides a bold reinterpretation of Berkeley's work. Jesseph challenges the prevailing view that Berkeley's mathematical writings are peripheral to his philosophy and argues that mathematics... more...

  • Just One of the Guys?by Kristen Schilt

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 26.00

    The fact that men and women continue to receive unequal treatment at work is a point of contention among politicians, the media, and scholars. Common explanations for this disparity range from biological differences between the sexes to the conscious and unconscious biases that guide hiring and promotion decisions. Just One of the Guys? sheds new... more...

  • A River Runs Through It and Other Stories, Twenty-fifth Anniversary Editionby Norman Maclean

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 12.00

    Just as Norman Maclean writes at the end of "A River Runs through It" that he is "haunted by waters," so have readers been haunted by his novella. A retired English professor who began writing fiction at the age of 70, Maclean produced what is now recognized as one of the classic American stories of the twentieth century. Originally published in 1976,... more...

  • The Fair Societyby Peter Corning

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 17.00

    We?ve been told, again and again, that life is unfair. But what if we?re wrong simply to resign ourselves to this situation? What if we have the power?and more, the duty?to change society for the better? We do. And our very nature inclines us to do so. That?s the provocative argument Peter Corning makes in The Fair Society . Drawing on the evidence... more...

  • A Planet of Virusesby Carl Zimmer

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 12.00

    Viruses are the smallest living things known to science, yet they hold the entire planet in their sway. We are most familiar with the viruses that give us colds or the flu, but viruses also cause a vast range of other diseases, including one disorder that makes people sprout branch-like growths as if they were trees. Viruses have been a part of... more...

  • Frontier Seaportby Catherine Cangany

    University of Chicago Press 2014; US$ 45.00

    Detroit?s industrial health has long been crucial to the American economy. Today?s troubles notwithstanding, Detroit has experienced multiple periods of prosperity, particularly in the second half of the eighteenth century, when the city was the center of the thriving fur trade. Its proximity to the West as well as its access to the Great Lakes and... more...
